Is there anything better than coming home and having dinner ready in your slow cooker? The only problem for me is that most slow cooker recipes tend to involve meat. My slow cooker hasn’t been getting as much love as it should, so I tapped some of my blogger friends to share their favorite vegetarian slow cooker recipes with me! Turns out, there are tons of delicious vegetarian meals you can make in a crockpot!
